Will you accept this rose?
This week's hot topic has been Richie the Bachie.
Did you catch the first episode of The Bachelor?
We had everything from cringeworthy singing to a wannabe Disney princess, from bacon roses to bad attitudes to... a walk out!
Ahh, pure entertainment that requires no thinking whatsoever.
I realise that The Bachelor would be considered total fluff by some, but for me, the endless (repeated) cycle of sad, bad news followed by even more sad(der), bad(der) news had me desperately seeking escapism.
And I love a show that I can zone out to and just enjoy at a very simple, superficial level.
Are you the same?
I think it's just a fun way to hit the reset button on the seriousness of life and remember that there are plenty of roses out there amongst the thorns.
Happy weekend, everyone!
